    • Note from Krista Finstad Hanson

If Swan A. Swanson was living at 1475 W. Minnehaha Avenue in 1915, then the original house must have been moved,destroyed by fire, or perhaps there was an address change, as the current building at 1475 W. Minnehaha Avenue was built in 1939 according to the Ramsey County Property Lookup information listed on their website.
